Baldwin Helps Author Bipartisan 3-Digit Suicide Prevention Hotline Bill

The national Suicide
Prevention Hotline may soon be easier to access. 
Wisconsin Democrat Tammy
Baldwin was among the authors of a bipartisan bill that passed the U-S Senate.
It will designate a three-digit phone number for a national suicide prevention
and mental health crisis hotline. The current 10-digit National Suicide Prevention
Lifeline and Veterans Crisis lines are seen as a barrier to Americans in crisis
seeking support. The bill now heads to the House for approval.
